Beavertown arrives at custom-built premises in Ponders End claiming to be London’s biggest

London’s biggest brewery has opened on the banks of the River Lea.

‘Beaverworld’ is the new home for brewing company Beavertown, capable of producing 90 million pints every year – ten times more than its original brewery in Tottenham.

The £40million development was made possible after Heineken bought a minority stake in Beavertown two years ago. It will now employ 150 people at the new Ponders End site. It’s been a rapid growth for founder Logan Plant, son of Led Zeppelin signer Robert, who began by brewing beer in his kitchen in 2011.

Logan said: “Beaverworld has been a long time in the making and we’re thrilled that we’ve now started brewing on site in Enfield. With Beaverworld, we’ve created a quality-driven brewery with passion and love for the craft at its core.

“Beaverworld is the answer to our dream of getting more Beavertown in the hands of the masses and we could not be more excited that it’s now up and running.”
